Our home is located inside the Grandfather Golf and Country Club resort which boasts the second highest ranked golf course in North Carolina. Only world famous Pinehurst #2 is ranked higher.

Upon entering, you will find large widows and sliding glass doors giving a 180 degree northwesterly view offering beautiful evening sunsets. Relax on the deck with a loved one and a beverage of your choice and watch the sun disappear behind the mountains. Sitting high off ground, the home has an open, yet very private feel.
The main floor features: A private master suite with a king size bed, cedar walls and a full bath. A second bedroom with a king size bed and its own full bath with a double vanity. An open fully-loaded kitchen. An elegant dining room with mountain, woodland view. A spacious living room with large leather couches around an enormous two-story stone fireplace with a 55” HD TV over the mantle.

For the winter season, our mountain getaway is perfectly located to enjoy the best of the North Carolina's ski slopes. We are a ten minute drive to Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, twenty minutes from Beech Mountain Ski Resort and twenty minutes from snow tubing and the zip line at Hawksnest Resort. There are many places to cross country ski or just take a leisurely walk in the midst of the gorgeous scenery inside Grandfather Golf and Country Club.
You can hike right out of your back door to a trail that leads to McRea Meadows, home of the famous Highland games. If you are feeling adventurous, you can hike the Profile Trail and climb the majestic peaks of Grandfather Mountain. Of course, it's much easier to drive to the Mile High Swinging Bridge at the top of Grandfather Mountain which has many of the same views. If you are a backpacker or just want to hike for a day, the Appalachian Trail passes about ten miles away.
If you have children, you will want to visit Mystery Hill, the Gem Mine or the popular Tweetsie Railroad for memorable family fun. Enjoy good food from a vast array of nearby restaurants. Don’t forget to stop in the Mast General Store on the way home to satisfy a sweet tooth craving. There are too many amazing places in close proximity to list!
With unparalleled quality and comfort, this is the perfect place for family fun or some peaceful and very private relaxation. The home will warm your soul in any season and make your vacation a wonderful and memorable experience.

About: Roger and I are both from North Carolina. He was a Duke University football player and I was a UNC Chapel Hill Homecoming Queen You can imagine the rivalry in our household during March Madness! We have been married 44 years. Since we both grew up close to Charlotte (Monroe and Gastonia), we decided to raise our family there. The mountains have always been our retreat. For Roger, being an avid golfer and outdoor enthusiast, this was a perfect place. Needless to say, it was “love at first sight” when we discovered this lovely mountain home. We knew immediately that we had to have it. At that time, Roger worked for Bank of America and I owned a software business. We have both since retired and have spent many summers here in bliss. We have wonderful memories at Grandfather Golf and Country Club and know you will enjoy it as much as our family and friends have! -Georgia “Peach” & Roger
Why Linville: We purchased this particular property due it's feeling of privacy, nature and wilderness in the middle of the convenience and company of a gated community. We love to hike and experience the wonders of nature, but we also enjoy playing golf, tennis, and working out at club gym. It's the best of all worlds.
The Unique Benefits at this House: You''ll see wild turkeys strutting down or across the driveway. There are hiking trails that start right out the back door. The steps up the hill lead to McRae Meadows where the Highland Games are held. You can hear their music during the second weekend in July. The golf courses are beautiful and ranked in the top 100 in the US.
